Cathedral High School is a participating school in the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program (known widely as "voucher" program). Through this program, families who meet certain guidelines (see below) might be eligible for a Choice Scholarship (Voucher).
We believe that our participation in this program is consistent with our mission which, in part, calls for us to provide "to a diverse group of students" a holistic education rooted in Holy Cross values.
To be eligible for participation in the Indiana Choice Scholarship (Voucher) Program, the student must have legal settlement in Indiana, must meet income eligibility guidelines* based off a family's 2020 federal tax returns, and must satisfy at least one of the following pathways:
*Income eligibility guidelines are for the 20-21 school year and are subject to change for 21-22.
Indiana Tax Credit (SGO) Scholarships
In addition to the Choice Scholarship ("Voucher") Program, the State of Indiana has established a tax credit scholarship program that can provide scholarship funding through eligible Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs). The residency requirement is the same as those for the Choice Scholarship ("voucher") program, but there is no requirement that the student has attended a public school. Additionally, the family's income can be higher (up to 200% of the federal reduced lunch income for the family's household size).
If you believe that your family might qualify for an SGO Scholarship, please contact Ben Pawelak, Director of Database Operations, Advancement & Financial Aid, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
